Arbitrary code can be executed on the remote host through Visual Basic
The version of Visual Basic for Applications installed on the remote
host is affected by an insecure library loading vulnerability.
A remote attacker could exploit this flaw by tricking a user into
opening a legitimate Microsoft Office file located in the same
directory as a maliciously crafted dynamic link library (DLL) file,
resulting in arbitrary code execution.
Note that if an affected copy of VBE6.DLL was installed by a third-
party application, it may be necessary to contact that application's
vendor for an update.
